I’m not one for wearing makeup everyday but being a special needs mama that doesn’t get much sleep means that when I do I like a medium to full coverage foundation. These eye bags need some serious coverage plus I have some thick blue veins around my jawline. Soo many people have asked if I had pen on my face, seriously!
When I heard the hype about Milani foundation I just had to try it out. Even Cardi B wears Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation & if it’s good enough for the Red Carpet then it’s good enough for this mama going about her day in rainy Manchester, lol.
Cardi B’s makeup artist, Erika La’ Pearl, revealed “I mix Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation + Concealer in 06 Sand Beige and 09 Tan. I found out about Milani when I had to run to the drugstore, because I didn’t have time to go to Sephora to get Nars. It stays in place, though, on the red carpet, at the Grammys, and on stage.”
So let’s crack on with this Milani Conceal & Perfect foundation review:
Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer
I ordered from Beauty Bay but you can also order direct from Milani
Comes in 29 shades
Reduces redness in the face
A highly pigmented foundation
No mess, no drip pump
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
Straight up, I think I’ve now found my go to daily foundation. I ordered two shades 03 Light Beige & 09 Tan from Beauty Bay as I like to wear fake tan so like a darker shade to mix into my regular shade to match my tan.
I love that the bottle has a pump, it makes it so much easier to figure out how much of each shade I need rather than just pouring into my hand & ending up having to add more & more to get it right. I’m currently using one pump of Tan to two pumps of Light Beige. Each pump is quite a small amount so there’s no wastage seeing as you can’t pop it back into the bottle. I’m not a cheap skate by any means but no one likes wasting make up do they?
The coverage is amazing, it’s super opaque yet build able too. I need a little extra around my jawline to cover those blue veins but it covers my dark circles no problem & that’s no mean feat. This is definitely more of a fuller coverage than my MAC Studio Fix as its a thicker formula. I can easily get away without using concealer at all which is fab! Although if I’m going out I still like to use concealer as part of my highlight & contour routine for that extra glam look.
In these photos I’m not even wearing primer & the Milani foundation hasn’t settled into my pores at all. That can be a major problem with some foundations as I’m not as young as I used to be & my pores & fine lines are more noticeable. I’m so glad that it doesn’t settle into my mama wrinkles as when a foundation does that it just ages me so much & at 37 I really don’t need that.
WOULD YOU BUY IT AGAIN?
Yes I definitely would. As soon as I start running low I’ll be popping another order in. I’m interested in trying out other products from Milani. I’m loving the look of the Milani Rose Blush Trio Palette & the Milani Retouch & Erase Light Lifting Concealer too. I can feel another Beauty Bay order going in soon…
